Michael Beasley’s stats, courtesy of Basketball Reference. Remember these?
I ask because apparently 90% of bloggers on twitter can’t say his fucking name without making a joke about pot or how “crazy” he is. I just want to gauge how y’all on Tumblr are doin’.
Yeah, mildly amusing the Suns sign a player with a mildly checkered past with an inconsistent game while letting Captain Canada hit the Sunset Strip. But what’s the point of wishing a guy gets past his drug “problems” if you’re just gonna slap him down again and again and again? Didn’t know you assholes wrote for Us Weekly.
Sure, I poked at him in the past. But I also wished him the best. Hoped he got his act together. For the most part, it seems like he’s doing better. Last year was a bit of a setback, but I think he’ll have a nice little bounce-back year.
So what does this mean for the Suns? Well, they get an athletic wing they haven’t really had recently, unless you count Hedo Turkoglu, who was there for all of a cup of coffee. Beasley was hurt last year, which would explain such a sharp drop in his stats. I think he can average 15-5 this year, probably shoot between 45-50%.
But hey, I ain’t an expert. I’d suggest asking a professional, but they seem to be more interested in Mikey’s rap sheet than his rebounds, if ya feel me.
